tried to rig the election with the voter suppression laws and what they might have done, some republicans are saying, maybe we should broaden our appeal to win the next time. but these guys said, we just didn't rig it enough. and what's remarkable, you look at what husted wants to do in ohio, he wants gerrymandered house districts to determine where the vote goes. so obama would have carried the state and romney would have gotten 12 of 18 electoral votes. that doesn't make any sense. governor walker said he was concerned that this was unfair to poll workers that they had to register voters. now since these are, as far as i can tell, the only public employees for whom he's expressed sympathy, that can't be the reason they are doing this. and i just think that -- i hope this is a passing thing and that there are other forces in the republican party saying, no, we need a more fundamental rethink. they only need to shift about four votes in a hundred. you'd think they would have the confidence to win a fair election by converting just four people out of every 100 people. >> we hav

when you look at it on paper, a miles per hour that has not been changed. anything i decree is the law and the courts have no say. are the people going to take it? will they accept it? that is the question we will watch over the next few days. one more thing. it is important to remember egypt is the largest country in the region by population. it clearly has sway over the stability of the region. we have seen that recently in the conflict between hamas or the minutes and the israelis. is it your sense that things are teetering? the whole region seems to teeter with it. >>reporter: when you have such a large crowd in a square with tear gas and rocks being thrown it can be sparked off, bad things can happen, when a few people are killed. it can lead to worst things happening. the other side has shown some real restraint. we saw consolation of a protest movement by the muslim brotherhood today. if you get both sizes demonstrating, that is a recipe for disaster, the other side has held back. >>shepard: so far, steve. thank you very much. >> the important thing here is, remember, it is pres
: the district attorney is investigating shirakawa for repeated violations of state campaign ethics laws and misuse of public funds stemming from his alleged abuse of a county- issued credit card for lavish meals, trips to golf resorts, first class air and hotel upgrades and luxury car rentals. in his first public statements on the allegations last tuesday shirakawa blamed the media. >> i don't want you to be distracted by the political lynching that you read today and continue to read about. >> reporter: but it has been a distraction. >> there's a siren and a blaring in the community right now right or wrong from your perspective. >> reporter: one new area of focus is travel expenses. last april he reportedly billed taxpayers for his upgraded $560 a night hotel stay in washington, d.c. the night after his official itinerary had him flying home and in 2009 he was seemingly in two places at once attending a state conference in sacramento but charging taxpayers $95 for a working staff meeting at a downtown san jose restaurant. >> at the end. day it is like watching a train wreck and it's t
to get a report on that. the other court martial by law must start within 120 days. bradley manning has been in detention for over 1,000 days. there's something incredibly weird about that. he revealed things that were deeply embarrassing to the government, like this apache helicopter video out of iraq. >> the video shows unmanned men gunned down in iraq. showed on the website wikileaks.org in april the soldiers were found to have act the appropriately. >> cenk: of course. they always act appropriately. by the way, two journalists were killed in that strike, but apparently still appropriate. the one that did the appropriate action was not the one who killed the journalist and first responders, but bradley manning for revealing that information about the government. the one journalist that has been there throughout these proceedings is at fort meade now and joins us. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> cenk: let me does you about the 120 days things. why have they kept him over 1,000 days. >> it hasn't been a thousand days yet. we're closing in on that. basically, the gove
, employers can't skirt labor laws said they have to pay fair wages and abide the rules. immigration reform is the right thing to do as well as the economically smart thing to do. children should not have to live in fear of their parents deportation every day of their lives and some of the hardest working and most honorable people in our society should not have to be subject to exploitation and harassment. finally, i would just like to say that i'm truly appreciative of the support we have received from the urban league and other african-american leaders on this issue. i know that there've been tensions in the past, but i believe like the reverend dr. martin luther king jr. that when we have this tensions we have to embrace them so we can get past them. this is our time to come together, break issues down. let's get a solution on this issue because i know when we come together we can figure this out. i had the privilege of march and most recently this year in the annual march from selma mike on my end for us to montgomery and alabama it was an incredible feeling. there i was with congressma
the campaign finance laws. the citizens united decision was totally predictable as a response to mccain-fine gold. despite my working for john mccain, who had a campaign finance reform position i always thought was blazingly unconstitutional -- we have weakened the political parties and weaken the candidate committees. the political parties have been moderating influences in american politics -- the political parties goal is to assemble a majority, not to advance an ideology. the advancement of an ideology by either party is secondary, is a function of the majority. now, with all the super pac money there is increasingly ideological money, increasing the enforcement money. reagan talked about the fact that if you are with me 80% of the time you are not my political opponent, you are my political ally. in a super pac world where you have a apostate republican or an apostate democrats on an issue, you will see the enforcement of ideological discipline through the use of the super pac in a primary on either the left or the right. it has the fact, i think, of polarizing the electorate of an
george w. bush signed into law. his wife, former first lady laura bush, is with us today, as is her predecessor, secretary of state hillary clinton. coming together in mutual respect, a step from the chambers where we passionately debate the issues of the day that has become almost second nature to us. but it is a blessing, and we will hear over and over during the course of this ceremony, aung san suu kyi has shown the world just how hard one it really is. on behalf of the congress, let me express how humble and honored we are by your presence here in the rotunda of the united states capitol. >> ladies and gentlemen, please stand for the presentation of the callers by the united states armed forces color guard, the singing of our national anthem, and the retiring of the colors. oh say can you see by the dawn's early light, what so proudly we hail at the twilight's last gleaming, whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight, o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming, and the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, i gave proof through the ni
. these are people who think the president has overstepped himself by declaring his acts above the law and above the courts and they're calling for him to come down. the chants of violence in the crowd this loud, this angry in a country that is divided is certainly high. much of the violence now is to s around the main section of the crowd. that is where the younger protesters are scuffling with police. in an effort to reduce the chance of violence the president's supporters from the muslim brotherhood canceled a march to keep one side away from the other. martha? martha: this is so remarkable. we saw the scenes when hosni mubarak was thrown out of office. then there was the election and democracy supposedly that put president morsi in place. we have the same crowds back into the square and they're protesting again. he made some moves to try to quell all of this and compromise a bit. were they meaningful though, steve? >> reporter: certainly we are seeing exactly the same scenes, sometimes exactly the same chants that were used against hosni mubarak now being used against the new egyptian presid
, which are banned under international humanitarian law, it is a very dire situation. this is a huge problem that it is going to new lows, these banned weapons are being used and civilians and children are being killed. >> one of our international -- senior international correspondents, arwa damon, filed a report from the syrian border with turkey, she shows this refugee camp on the border, that is being actually targeted, the camp is being targeted by air strikes. turkish officials wouldn't let our reporter into the camp. it is not at all safe for her to do that. she actually spoke on the phone with a teacher, let's listen and we'll talk on the other side. >> the turkish military asked us to move from our other location but the teach wears telling us that she's been living in the camp for four months. he said there are around 12,000 people who were there. he was in the process of giving one of his classes when the first strike took place. he said it was complete and total chaos, the children were screaming, yelling, the entire camp began trying to run for the borders for safety. >>
sputnik and schering americans. because of it, there was a program that got me through college and law school. these loans make a big difference, whether it is pell grants or loans. let me look at this honestly. 25% of the federal aid education goes to for-profit schools. they have more than double the student loan default rate than any other. there are ways to cut back on spending and education that will give us opportunities and resources for real education, which can be part of our future. when it comes to the most painful topic at all -- of all. i came here in 1983 and was told social security would be on its way out. we rolled up with our sleeves and came up with a bipartisan solution that ultimately bought over 50 years of solvency for social security. we raised the retirement age, payable taxes on social security, and we taxed those social security benefits indirectly for the first time. today, social security will make every promised payment for the next 22 years. you cannot say that about much in washington. social security has not added one penny to the deficit. for those who

university law professor. likely to make at least one appointment in his second term. for justices, they are in their 70s, justice ginsburg with to po tenial she could retire being she is 79 years old. who would be the key, you think, to being replaced first, though? >> yeah. so i don't think that we can go solely on the ages because the ages are only a weak proxy. marty ginsburg, justice gips burg's late husband, how frail is a justice, she can do 25 push-ups, how many can you do? she wants to stay on at least as long as her hero, justin brandeis, a few years from now. >> who would be the next logical person looking to get off the bench? >> the next person who might get off the bench, it could be scalia, kennedy. i think they'll be hanging on with their fingernails to wait out this administration. and justice breyer, of course, is 74. so you have two people who are 76 and 74 underneath that. >> appointing a justice to the supreme court has always been seen as a history-changing moment for any president to do so. but in this case, does the president care wholeheartedly about changi

international law on the subject. let'sit this all through the spin cycle. and a couple of things here. as a liberal i am sort of troubled by how much we use drones and in particular the lack of transparency here. we really don't know exactly what's going on. but i will say this. one aspect i think that's not brought up is there is an actual moral case to be used for drones, which is this. because of the nature of the ins strument, you can actually be more targeted than other options and studies show there is actually less collateral damage from the use of drones than from other options. there was a study that showed, you know, the proportion of civilian deaths is between 4% and 20%. for drone use. comparable tactics, more like 46%. so there is a moral case to be made there also we shouldn't underestimate our men and women are out of harm's way. and there are lots of charges about liberal hypocrisy. i will say this and basically is this. liberals were very outspoken under the bush years, not so much under obama. ly say this. the drone rule book really underscores there's a lot of execu
bernie sanders. he would take everything he could from the wealthy. if congress passes a law that seizes private property from wealthy americans we will no longer have a capitalistic country. when you guys out there yell at me for not calling barack obama a socialist, now you know where the bar is i don't expect barack obama to endorse a health tax if he does all hell is going to break loose. i lived in a state for two years and i admire the spirit there i love california. the weather is great it's a beautiful place. as for philosophy, i'm with the texans. i don't want the federal government telling me how to live or taking what i earn to a punishing degree. and that's the memo. next on the run down, reaction from juan and mary katharine. will they answer my questions tonight? last week they didn't. drama mounting. we'll be right back. my wife takes centrum silver. i've been on the fence about it. then i read an article about a study that looked at the long term health benefits of taking multivitamins. they used centrum silver for the study... so i guess my wife was right.

's dumbest term limit law will get repea d repealed. is there any progress on that? are you ready to sign that bill saying, hey, i'm not going to seek it but for the next governor there should be re-election? do you believe there should be re-election? >> people ought to have a choice. there's 26 years in a row the constitution has attempted to be amend amended by the legislature. it's failed every year. i think it's time to create a choice for the people. >> do you think that this has hurt -- are there things you can't get done because you get turned into a lame duck governor too quickly? when do you feel the politics makes it harder for you, for any sitting governor? >> some of the media it's about a month after you get elected. no, but, what it does do, it creates a real sense of urgency to get things done. it creates the freedom to do what you think is right. >> so that's the upside. >> the down side is i think sometimes you see more power to the legislature but also to appointed officials within the administration that go from governor to governor. so i think on balance we ought to j

where one of the hosts, cheri jacobus, had questionable reasoning for photo i.d. laws. let's hear what she said. >> voter photo i.d., obama lost every one of those states. he can't win in a state where photo i.d. is required. so clearly there's something going on out there, and until there's a way to have something done about it, where when you report it, you know it's going to be looked into, the other side just says, oh, well, you're just poor losers and that sort of thing. >> your tone suggests you're a little upset with me. you're preaching to the choir. >> no, we get that. >> i'm with you completely. >> well, get this, president obama lost georgia, indiana, kansas, and tennessee not because of their strict photo i.d. laws but because of their conservative voting majorities obviously. >>> next, a whole new meaning for a campaign in shreds. we're talking literally. the remains of some documents with information about mitt romney's campaign motorcade went through an unlikely disposal process. they became the confetti found by bystanders at the macy's thanksgiving day parade. some par
about that? couldn't the democrats start introducing a bunch of laws on a state level and all of these states across the country that would be anti-voter suppression laws, enforce the republicans to legislatively take a stand on it. >> absolutely, ed. we should definitely do that and continue to unite with the voting advocates groups. we are not going to sit by and let them continue to push this kind of stuff. a number one lesson we should learn, what happened in 2010 cannot happen in 2014. we have midterm elections in congress but we also have general assemblies and governors mansions across the state where folks have to reup. they have to reup to the voters. we need to make sure that every voter understands clearly that folks who try to suppress the vote should not be in office. it is a malstrom of foolishness and the people cannot allow this to stand. these folks need to be voted out of office, ed. >> they do. which brings me to the next question. are you going to run for secretary of state in the state of ohio? you know i am seriously considering that and i plan to make an
is wrong with u.s. labor laws. little has changed for labor under the obama presidential administration. in fact, at a federal level, few have even commented on recent labor organizing against walmart. while on a local level, whether it be boycotting or purposefully spending your money at a retailer, shopping at walmart is aligned with certain political statements. yet, the majority tends to have few choices about the matter. back with me at the table is the panel. dan, let me ask a little about this. it does feel to me like a couple of retailers the choice to shop there or not shop there. a political statement. grover norquist is tweeting, avenge twinkie. shop at walmart today. >> now if you're a walmart shopper, you're somehow pro -- how does this happen? >> you know, walmart workers taking the stand has certainly brought an amazing debate. that debate includes tweets like that. the thing that's been much more exciting is a larger debate that's happening. walmart is the largest employer in the country. the debate that's happening is -- as said by then senator obama, what is the respon

nothing then we go off that cliff. if we do nothing then current law requires all those rates to go up. that may be what "the wall street journal" is referring to, the simple fact that a default operation with no intervention by congress will result in a rate increase. >> they're also -- they are also clearly saying that if republicans can negotiate a deal in which rates went up somewhat but not all the way back to the 39.6 top rate under president clinton that they would deserve credit for doing that. they seem to be suggesting you would be increasing rates somewhat and. do you think that's an idea that will take root among senate republicans? >> perhaps so. i haven't seen the editorial. i don't know specifically beyond what you've described what they're saying. >> there is room, there, you think, for raising rates? not as much as letting the bush tax rates expire completely and closing loopholes, you think that might be fertile ground, is that what you're saying? >> i don't think that's a good idea. it's a horrible idea to raise taxes on anyone. for rates to go up in this economy is
extraordinary powers. he said judges cannot overturn any decision he makes or law he imposes. today morsi meets with egypt's highest judicial body. >>> john mccain seems to be softening his stance on susan rice. last week, the arizona senator vowed to do everything in his power to block rice's potential nomination to be secretary of state. blasting her for telling americans the september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was spontaneous and triggered by an anti-islam video. but now, mccain is dialing it back. >> i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position, and the actions that they took. i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> rice claims everything she said in the aftermath of the benghazi attack was based on information provided by u.s. intelligence agencies. >>> noted civil rights activist warren guyot. he led a black voter registration drive during mississippi's freedom summer of 1964. he had a history of heart problems. he was 73. >> and check out this truck, barely hanging on to an overpass. look at that by its two back tires. here's t

and your tax cut will be higher. but congress can change the tax law. remember, the republicans themselves did this when they raised taxes on teenagers who work six years ago. so the immediate effect is less than the boogeyman effect. the thing to watch for is do the democrats and president obama hold firm or do they betray the people who put them in office? >> would it be a betrayal at this point, do you think? >> if we come up with a gimmick that really makes the tax burden not fall on the very wealthiest of people. but on upper middle class americans and middle class americans, that would be something of a betrayal, yes. >> what does this do to republican's credibility on the economy? after they have gone through this era of obstruction, they have talked down the economy and then numbers like this come up, you'd think they'd be concerned about that. >> what they are trying to do here, ed, is if they are unable to get their own troops in line to make a deal, if they are going to pledge more allegiance to grover norquist than to
